Just bought a 05 660 and I guess it sat for a few mounths before I got it. I have not really given a good run yet but it seems that the clutch is dragging. When I put it in gear with the clutch pulled it lunges forword only when engine is cold, when it is warmed up clutch works fine. Should I plan a clutch rebuild or do I just need to get those clutch plates loosend up? I tried adjusting the cable it did not help. Thanks for any ones advice.

Can you please explain?
Cold oil is thicker then hot oil so the clutch plates do not drag as easily when the oil is hot, since this a multiple disc clutch, any oil between the discs will drag the clutch plates when disengaged........

Agreed, absolutely normal due to viscous friction between cold oil and clutch plates. If it bothers you, you can go to a lower oil viscosity - 10w30 instead of 10w40 or 20w50, for instance. This will reduce the drag when cold, but not eliminate it.

What temperature is the bike at when cold, these days?
